Tonight in Music: Bachxing Day, Year End Hiphop Showcase

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Thu, Dec 26, 2013 at 10:38 AM


BACHXING DAY: CLASSICAL REVOLUTION PDX
(Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta) Throughout the British Empire, servants and rabble had to wait until the day after Christmas for presents from their masters. Now it's just called Boxing Day, and it's about being nice to people. Be nice to your own ears after weeks of insipid Christmas music and enjoy some Bach, courtesy of anti-elitist Classical Revolution PDX at a show called Bachxing Day. DENIS C. THERIAULT


YEAR END HIPHOP SHOWCASE: STEWART VILLAIN, DONTE THOMAS, MARKI$ APOLLO, CASSOW, PACKARD BROWNE, NO LEADER, CARMINE, SLICK DEVIOUS, PYETTI, MAXI, MATO
(Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE César E. Chávez) If, like me, you've decided to spend the next little while digging into our city's vibrant hiphop scene, there's no better place to dive in with both feet than this exhibition of rhymers and beatmakers. In the space that we have, we can only call out a few of the 11 acts on this bill, but keep your eyes and ears peeled for the soulful production work and laidback delivery of duo Slick Devious, the verbal rabbit punches of Fresh Select artist Cassow, the young striver and ladykiller Donte Thomas, and Stewart Villain, an up-and-comer who has produced tracks for notables like Danny Brown, Keak Da Sneak, and Nipsey Hussle.
